A guy adopted a new pet dog and uploaded this picture of him and his dog as a way of expressing his happiness. However, people called the police on this guy for a susceptible reason.
The actual controversy began when people saw the picture, and they were enraged as a ban on having pit bulls was going on in the area. The owner of the dog, Dan bravely fought back all the criticism and made a clear statement regarding the type of his pet dog. He said that looks might deceive people, but Diggy [his pet dog] is not a pit bull, He said:
“My lawyer and I are going to do everything possible to make sure Diggy stays in his home with us, his family.” he wrote. “Thanks for all of your support, guys. I’m not a quitter.”
Despite the fight back, the matter remained silent for a certain period of time. There came the point where it reached court, and still, Diggy’s ownership status remained unclear amidst all the chaos. However, after all the criticism, a group of people came out to support Dan and Diggy and even signed petitions to lift the pit bull ban and let Dan retain the ownership of Diggy.
Due to this action of wise people, things turned around quickly. The director of Detroit Dog Rescue even said:
“People had really invested their emotions into this story, and it’s beautiful to see so many people care about rescue dogs.”
After a chain of uncertain events that led to many hardships as well as ups and downs in the life of Dan and Diggy, all the charges against Dan were dismissed at the 51st District Court ultimately allowing Diggy to stay with Dan in peace.
Finally, here we have Dan and Diggy celebrating their victory as they defeated all the odds to stay together at the end. Expressing his happiness, Dan said:
“We get to keep our boy”, he’s a good boy.”
Due to this event, township changed its decision on the ban regarding the ownership of pit bulls. Now, this is a story worth sharing! You go high, boy!
